Congratulations to Class of 2019’s Valedictorian Nelson Chow who was named one of only four in New York State as a 2019 U.S. Presidential Scholar by the U.S. Department of Education and the Commission on Presidential Scholars. It is one of the highest awards the nation can bestow upon a graduating high school senior. In recognition of his achievement, Nelson will be honored in Washington, DC at the end of June and participate in a series of events for all Presidential Scholars. Nelson was also recently named one of 18 in the nation to receive the General Electric Reagan Scholarship in the amount of $40,000. He will be attending Princeton University in the fall. The district wishes him the best of luck in all of his future endeavors.

Ranked Among Best High Schools in U.S.
For the first time, Malverne High School has been ranked on The U.S. News and World Reports Best High Schools list. Not only is Malverne High School ranked in the top 11% of schools in the nation, but very few schools on the list share Malverne’s demographics. More than 23,000 schools were evaluated with 1,200 of those schools representing New York. Malverne High School was ranked 178th in the state, 50th on the island and 32nd in county.

“Our diversity is our strength and Malverne is a shining example of what can be accomplished with a steadfast commitment to access and equity, and a genuine belief in the potential of ALL students,” Malverne High School Principal Dr. Vincent Romano said. “We have a family atmosphere and we strive to challenge and support students to achieve at levels they never thought possible. We treat students as if they were our own children.”

Schools are ranked on six factors: College Readiness (30%), Math and Reading Proficiency (20%), Math and Reading Performance (20%), Underserved Student Performance (10%), College Curriculum Breadth (10%) and Graduation Rate (10%).
